U.J.A. Delegation Flies to Milan to Study Conditions at Italian Dp Camps for Jews

The United Jewish Appeal delegation touring Europe and Palestine to study the needs of the displaced Jews and the new Jewish state left for Milan today by plane on the first leg of its journey through Italian DP camps for Jews.

Yesterday, the American Jewish communal leaders visited the Dachau death camp where they viewed with evident horror the gas chambers, crematoria and mass burial fields where the last remains of hundreds of thousands of Jews rest. They attended a special memorial service at the camp. Later, they proceeded to the nearby Indersdorf Children’s Center where some 200 Jewish children are attending school in a former monastery.
